This is for 28-4-28 Challenge #3 ( I listed how this fulfills the requirements on that post.) I am still plugging away on my 2010 Disney trip.

elaynef, I understand about the Emerson quote on the b-day card. I have a DSIL who comes up with interesting and vague quotes. Great job on the cards. I love the Asian animals on the front. I’m sure she will appreciate the work you did to get the Chinese characters right. ~I love the scenery photos you took on Queen Anne’s Lace and Artesian well. They look so green and pretty. Great job on the Queen Anne’s cluster. ~ Is that Spanish moss on his head? What a cute little actor. I love the red Love jar and the little banner at the bottom of the companion page.~ Those photos are priceless on Lego Land. Love your designs that let the photos take center stage. Cute banner and twine.~ The Big Apple looks like a great time for the travelers, but even more fun for the kids with grandma and grandpa.
craftymom101, your cards are so pretty. Your stamping is wonderful. Do you use a stamping platform? jeremysgirl, your Sisters page is wonderful. That’s a great photo of the two of you. I love that heart with the tassel.~What a great photo and explanation of the Pisces man. I love the fish icon that you used. He sounds like a great guy.
Meelleek, I love the heart background on your Love layout. The metallic title is a great touch. That photo is priceless. What a cutie. ~I love her little tongue sticking out on Super fun. Sweet photos and cute title. Great little banner at the bottom. ~Meg is One is delightful. I love those tiny heart/rosebuds on your paper. The sentiment card is perfect.
I hope I have not skipped anyone. I love seeing all the new layouts popping up.
Love the b&w stripes, craftymom101 . Love the fresh colours of the greenery and the title. Also love those tiny hearts and stars.
Now back to page two:
elaynef, you have been a crafting machine! Your cards are really cool. I am sure your family loves both the photos and the humorous little extras. Awesome idea for the Chinese zodiac page! Love how each double page LO is so unique. The Palmetto Park pages I love the tree pp and icons, and the vellum and flowers. On the "Actor" page, I LOVE the caption! And that jar on the map is a great extra. The photos on the Legoland pages really caught my eye. I love the banners on this and your other pages. That Big Apple Tourist page is really cool. Love the large apple under the title and the smaller ones on the pp. Great fall colours on these two pages.
This is for my Tuesday 28-4-28 example, but since it's a tic-tac-toe board you'll never get a head start
On the "be a flamingo" card, I added "or blend in and stay home...yeah, that's more like it"
I actually had a disaster with it: a full can of fizzy water (only water fortunately) spilled on it just as I finished it and was waiting for sequins to dry!!! I had to completely redo the title block So the "being brave" is in different fonts than I first used because I didn't have the right letters left. And the layout is a little warped...
@elyanef love the cards and the way you make them so fun! I really like that you used different backgrounds on the Palmetto Park pages! I have some clips that I haven't known quite what to do with, love that, and your clusters, and that map is perfect! Great photos for Legoland, and I love that flag banner at the bottom. The Big Apple Tourist pages are just beautiful! I love the colors and that photo grid! And I also love it that you are going to stop counting points because it doesn't "spark joy" I'm becoming a big believer in that concept!
Beautiful work ladies and I say it every time because it's true, so inspiring!
Here is a page from this morning. I found an older photo (2016) to go with my birthday page. I wanted to use the Chinese diecuts for the zodiac challenge b/c this is MY year. Have had these for about 7 years.
Points: one page created and shared (2). Also points for #3 (28-4-28 for Day 10), #9 (red), #10 (flowers), #12 (stamp), #18 (hoarded Chinese laser cuts since 2012), #25, #26, #38 (torn edge), #41 (photo), #42 (page), #44 (Chinese New Year), #47 (one photo), #50 (label shaped card). Total: 15
This one I did for 28-4-28 day 2, the colour palette challenge. It didn't stay as true to the palette as I planned, but I'm going with the inspiration behind it I also wanted to dig into my project life cards, and I succeeded!
First the LOVE_ Meelleek - You are on FIRE this weekend. Your little cutie is going to love her scrapbooks. The hearts were probably a lot of work , but well worth it. The superfun sticker is perfect, I enjoyed the park pictures a lot- that is a really fun LO. The funny facee background paper is perfect. @elayenef- The Chinese characters card is soooo clever. craftymom - I really got a tropical vibe from your black & white stripe LO & that worked so well due to your embellies. Great page! dasmith2 - beautiful tone-on-tone work. jeremysgirl - your Fancy title across the page & the varied embellies & paper worked so well together. Purple can sometimes be hard & you nailed it. I LOVE the vintage vibe of your camp picture & the stitching!!!
Here is my offering for today. This took me FOREVER. I made 19 of these. Why 19? cuz the die went flipping out of my hand & I can't find it anywhere so there are 19 instead of 20. I have wanted to challenge myself on learning some new techniques. This is called Distress Monoprint & although I didn't achieve the stunning contrast looks that Jennifer McGuire (my Queen Enabler) achieved, I think I know what I am missing for the next set. I have wanted to work on building up my stash of Christmas cards & have decided to do some throughout the year. With the Pea Christmas card exchange, the Pokeys exchange & my friends & family I need a lot & it is perfect for honing my new technique. I don't think I fulfilled any of the 28-4-28 challenges, so the points are from the February challenge. February Challenge by Pati Nuce, on Flickr PS - The card is not warped as it appears in the picture. I am using a few for Christmas thank yous that are way overdue. Points: Create=19 , post=1, #1- spell Love (Layered die cut, Oxide ink, Violet sentiment, Envelope)=19, #12-stamping=19, #16-Card=19, #22-Die=19, #24-Scrps (I covered my leftover Christmas cards with ink & attached the monoprint over the greeting.)=19, #33- New line-=19 point, the stamps & die were a Christmas release, #41-rock those rectangles= (die, card, monoprint)=19, TOTAL=141 points (& I feel like I sweated over every one of those! ALTHOUGH IF ANYONE THINKS THAT I SHOULD REDUCE THE POINT TOTAL, I AM OPEN TO THAT. )
We are on fire today! Enjoying everyone's layouts! I guess I spilled some very sweet, creamy coffee on my desk some time because I found my stack of Christmas photos totally melted together yesterday....need to stop leaving them near the coffee.
Nylene lift (Kaylee) also tic tac toe with colors blue, orange, green (I was surprised I didn't have any orange buttons) and the Dream challenge:
page 2 is me and my grandson. I have 12 grands and this is the only one who looks like me...what do you think? He the one with the most make up!
Another challenge I've given myself, is to use both sides of the paper. It helps keep the bulk of the books down. Maybe everyone will end up with only 20 books instead of 40. So most of these layouts are both a and b sides except when I just couldn't make it work.
Another for the 6x6 pad challenge. (the frames and cards were in that pad, too) Its really a 5x8, and I've got a lot of these papers left, I think I tore out all the papers from the pads and there must be several of them. I think it will work for a lot of things if I'll remember to dig into it.
jeremysgirl - awesome details on your layouts, stitching, buttons, bows, rounded corners @kellem - really really cute layouts! Love the scene on "fun with friends" elaynef - your grandson is too cute, and I love the sketchy elements on the wizard of oz page! And I'm always happy to see multi-photo pages - you did a great job of making the photos enjoyable! patin - jennifer mcguire inspires me too! Your card is stunning and 19 is quite an achievement. Card points really do add up quick - I did 6 in january which were very technique heavy, and they racked me up some nice points. WTG!!!
